L.A.’s Black Hippy may be one of the most exciting rap crews to emerge in recent years, but all four members of the group don’t appear together on the same song very often. When they do, it’s cause for celebration. On the remix to Ab-Soul’s “Black Lip Bastard,” fellow Black Hippy members Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, and Jay Rock all show up and do their best to snatch the song away from him, and that sense of talented friends in a room together, pushing each other, is something rare in rap these days. The video, directed by the ICU, is a dark and glitchy affair, but everyone in it is still having fun. Watch it below.
Ab-Soul’s album Control System is out now on Top Dawg Entertainment.
